Cuba week continues with another picture submitted by Rafael. This picture was taken in 1912, and shows a communion service. His grandmother is shown just to the right of the cross.


Wanted to share with you that we had a great weekend. We helped host a real Old Time Revival in the park by the South Concho River. We had a large sound stage, and had ten live bands that played throughout the weekend. We had free BBQ and an inspiring message each day, and the speaker was a former drug addict who has spent the last 20 years in and out of prison. God miraculously delivered him from his addictions, and now he preaches. I had the wonderful opportunity to work with him all summer, and must say I have never seen someone so on fire for the Lord. The revival culminated with an old fashioned River Baptism, which you can enjoy below.


  1. Thank you for this posting. What a fantastic way to be baptized. I attend a small church that does not have any extra trimmings, so I was baptized in a horse trough (new one!) and that was pretty great also.

  2. *looks around and hears crickets*

    It's funny (peculiar, not haha) how so many people shun anything having to do with Christianity.

    Thank you, Mr. PJM, for the domestic update, and may God bless you and your family, and also you and yours Rebecca2!

  3. OK Joe, you shamed me into it. Our church occasionally does baptisms at a local coastal spot. We're on a peninsula so there's no shortage of them. But like most others at church me, my wife , and our daughter got baptized in the hideaway tank on the stage in the sanctuary. It looks like a jacuzzi without the jets.

    A used horse trough would have been a test of faith rather than a testimony.


  4. love the pictue and the sentiment.
